Special Event - International Boat Show Breakfast
Gold Coast North Chamber of Commerce and Mulpha Group invite you to join us at The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show Breakfast followed by complimentary entry into the Boat Show.
Guest Speaker Jessica Watson OAM
Jessica will give us an insight into what it takes to sail solo non-stop and unassisted around the world. An extraordinary performance by any means made more incredible when you consider she was just 16 years of age.
Defying criticism from those who said her task was destined to fail, after 210 days at sea navigating some of the world’s most challenging stretches of oceans and surviving seven knockdowns, Jessica sailed back into Sydney Harbour on 15 May 2010.
After she docked at the Sydney Opera House, she walked up the pink welcome carpet, met the Prime Minister on stage and then delivered what many believe is one of the most simple, but brilliant speeches where she replied to the Prime Minister’s summary of her as our newest Australian hero:
“ I would disagree with our Prime Minister. I do not consider myself a hero. I am just an ordinary person, who had a dream and worked hard at it. By sailing solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world, I have proved that anything really is possible”.
She is an inspiring story that ultimately proves that we all have the power to live our dreams, no matter how small or big they are!
